EXCLUSIVELY AT IFI
T.S. Spivet is a clever, precocious and intuitive 10-year-old living on the family’s ranch in Montana, with an imagination and intelligence that give him the notion to escape his meagre circumstances. His parents appear mismatched; dad is a cowboy throwback, while mom is a distracted entomologist. His timid brother and diva of a sister give him further cause for grief. On taking a call from the Smithsonian, who are under the impression he is a grown-up inventor of a perpetual motion machine, he leaves home for Washington, intent on accepting a prize being offered to him. His decision sets him on course for a brilliant adventure.
The latest film from the acclaimed director of Amélie and Delicatessen, The Young and Prodigious T.S. Spivet is a sweet and vivid fable, and a warming, affectionate love letter to America. (Notes by Michael Hayden.)
